On Saturday, January 20, 2018, Mississippi College students will come together for a day committed to service, community, and fellowship. By rallying students together to participate in a day of community service, The Big Event aspires to give back to the Jackson-Metro community and hopefully encourage MC students to volunteer year-round. The day will begin at 9 a.m. in front of Nelson Hall where students will gather to pray before departing to one of five nonprofits. Service will end at 1 p.m. at which time the Campus Activities Board will provide lunch for volunteers. Students can expect to be back on campus by 2 p.m. Join us as we set aside one day to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus to our community!
